Example text

The concept has been strongly advocated by Str¨omgren (1986, 1987). , 2000; Ungvari and Mullen, 2000). Although according to WHO, the ‘Reactive Psychoses’ could be a synonym for ATPD, this is only true for a very small part of them. Reactive psychoses differ from ATPD, mainly due to the criterion ‘psychosocial precipitant’, which must be present in reactive psychoses, but not in ATPD. Another significant difference from ATPD is the broad and unspecific constellation of symptoms of the ‘reactive/psychogenic psychoses’, at least as presently diagnosed in Scandinavia.

In the International Pilot Study on Schizophrenia (IPSS, WHO, 1979), 1202 patients with so-called ‘endogenous psychoses’ were uniformly investigated. The study was carried out in nine countries (Colombia, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, India, Nigeria, China, Russia, United Kingdom, USA). One of the most important findings of this study was that the schizophrenic patients in the centres of developing countries (Nigeria, India, Colombia) had a more favourable course and 2-year outcome than patients in centres of industrial countries.

Reactive abnormalities are therefore a complete contrast to all morbid processes which appear spontaneously. Jaspers stressed that reactive states can be classified in different ways: (a) according to what precipitates the reaction. As examples of precipitating factors, Jaspers mentioned those responsible for prison psychoses, for psychoses due to earthquakes and catastrophes, for reactions of homesickness, combat psychoses and psychoses of isolation, whether due to linguistic barriers or deafness.
